Stitching Santa

buttonThis year I decided to take part in Stitching Santa, a secret Santa for sewing bloggers organised by Sewchet. It was great fun having a nosy round someone else’s blog, working out what they would like for Christmas. It was equally a funny feeling to know someone else was having a nosy round my blog for the same reason…

My parcel arrived a couple of weeks ago and has been sat under our Christmas tree tempting me, I have to confess to the occasional squidge πŸ™‚

Well today I could finally open it! My Stitching Santa has chosen to stay anonymous but I want to say a huge thank you to my secret Santa, my present is gorgeous!

In my parcel was a lovely length of fabric, it’s furnishing weight and I am very tempted to make an overnight bag from it. It’s a wonderful design with colourful birds, flowers and leaves, I think it will look great, maybe with some leather handles in one of the flower colours and a contrasting zip, I can picture it now…

There was a co-ordinating length of green spotty bias binding which I can use as a trim on my bag!

In my parcel was also two pretty pencils from the Tate Modern art gallery, which makes me think my secret Santa has a secret camera inΒ my sewing room, never mind my blog, as I’m always searching for pencils!! Hopefully these will stay in my sewing room pencil pot ready for any tracing πŸ™‚

So to my Secret Santa…

Thank you for a wonderful present πŸ™‚14479811_1113167015418572_3959619735967417734_n

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Happy Christmas Margaret πŸŽ„ looking forwarding to seeing you bag, love the coordinating bias binding, it’ll look fab!
    I’m impressed you’ve found time to write a post, I’ve watched 3 films but been doing some knitting, otherwise I’d have withdrawal symptoms from my crafty ways! x
